To whom it may concern:
My name is Mary O’Leary. I am currently living between Cork and the US. I am tracing the Irish ancestors of a friend of mine Lisa Foley in the United States.
Lisa’s maternal great grandfather came from Lisnaboy, Cullen, Millstreet, Co Cork.
His name was John Murphy, he was born around 1876 in Cullen. His parents names were John Murphy and Julia Noonan (Nunan). He emigrated to New Jersey around 1896.
He married Hanor/Norah O’Leary born around 1877 also in Cork (perhaps Millstreet). I am not sure whether they married in Ireland or the US.
Hanor/Norah O’Leary’s parents names were Daniel O’Leary and Johanna Murphy.
John and Hanor/Norah had four children all born in New Jersey Hannah (Anna), Julia, Daniel and Mary. Hannah(Anna) married Stephen Hughes and had two daughters Rita and Patricia. Rita is the mother of my friend Lisa.
I would appreciate any assistance on this matter. Could you direct me to somebody who could help me or do you know are there church records available locally?
The information I am looking for somewhat falls after the 1901 and 1911 census and earlier census information is sparse.
Thanking you in anticipation. Kind regards,
